Long before we became involved in selling LIKEaBIKEs, we were happy customers ourselves. Or, to be more precise, it was our son, Josef, who was the happy user and really got to enjoy riding it. When he was about two and a half years old, a German-based Santa Claus went looking for a LIKEaBIKE for him. By early March he was riding on his LIKEaBIKE along the sidewalks of Brooklyn, New York.

In 1817 Baron von Drais invented a walking machine that would help himget around the royal gardens faster: two same-size in-line wheels, the front one steerable, mounted in a frame which you straddled. The device was propelled by pushing your feet against the ground, thus rolling yourself and the device forward in a sort of gliding walk. The machine became known as the Draisienne or hobby horse. It was made entirely of wood. This enjoyed a short lived popularity as a fad, not being practical for transportation in any other place than a well maintained pathway such as in a park or garden. Had pneumatic tires been available at the time, it is likely that the invention would have been adopted by a much greater number of riders. LIKEaBIKE utilizes this pioneering idea. With the LIKEaBIKE, children playfully acquire a sense of equilibrium and learn to play whilst acquiring a sense of balance – they will not need a bike with training wheels later on. LIKEaBIKE teaches balance and control at a much earlier age than with traditional pedal bicycles with stabilizing aids.”
